You need to look at ACI 308R Guide to Curing Concrete. That has all of the appropriate explanations for fogging in much more detail. |

Thanks Harold, I appreciate your detailed response.
What is the procedure for using the foggers while pouring and finishing the concrete? Is there a specified coverage per fogger? How is ponding of the water prevented like would happen with a sprinkler? Are foggers close to the ground? I tried a google search to look for examples or photos and didn’t find much.

There is a huge reservoir of specifications contained on the WBDG web site.
I’m putting together a written specifications and looking for help with some products. I would like recommendations for the best product to use for concrete topping slab joint sealant on a parking garage type structure. Also, any surface preparation and primer. The surface is exposed to the sunlight.
I’m also looking for suggestions for the topping slab itself. I have a double tee floor structure. I’m planning on a 3” concrete topping, 4,000 psi, field poured. I have specified a 0.40 w/c content, 4-6% air. The location is Texas.
I would appreciate any sample written specifications that anyone may want to submit to me regarding the topping and sealant.
